Photos should be taken in bright daylight, perpendicular to the fossil - not at an oblique angle.

I would like to see better pics of 256 257 258 290 292 296 before giving an opinion on those. Like fossildude said, in sunlight, camera perpendicular to the fossil surface, and possibly with sunlight at an angle to highlight the fossil's contours (which it probably will be anyway, if your camera is directly above!).

254 - carved Goniatites
291 - Without knowing the exact location of the find it would be just a guess, but if it came from Florida a good possibility might be Gomphotherium. I could see the resemblence with Cuvieronius. Try to compare with the specimens shown here :

 

Cuvieronius.jpg291.jpg

 

Lucas et al., eds., 2008, Neogene Mammals. New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science Bulletin 44. - CUVIERONIUS (MAMMALIA, PROBOSCIDEA) FROM THE NEOGENE OF FLORIDA  https://www.researchgate.net/publication/281862590_Cuvieronius_Mammalia_Proboscidea_from_the_Neogene_of_Florida

 

300 - could also be Amethyst http://www.mindat.org/min-198.html
